The Berlin-based artist Julian Rosefeldt (born in Munich in 1965) is internationally renowned for his visually opulent and meticulously choreographed moving image artworks, mostly presented as complex multi-screen installations. Inspired equally by the histories of film, art and popular culture, Rosefeldt uses familiar cinematic tropes to carry viewers into surreal, theatrical realms, where the rituals of everyday life absorb the inhabitants, employing humour and satire to seduce audiences into familiar worlds made strange. Rosefeldt’s works are showing internationally at museums and film festivals: His recent film work Manifesto (2015) was presented in solo exhibitions at the Park Avenue Armory Hall, New York (2016-17), the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin (2016), the ACMI – Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne (2015) and many more. Past group shows include Moving Time: Video Art at 50: 1965-2015 at CAFA Art Museum, Beijing (2016), Wolfsburg Unlimited at the Kunstmuseum in Wolfsburg (2016), Zeitgeist: The Art of New Berlin at the CCBB in Rio de Janeiro (2016) and Conflict, Time, Photography at the Tate Modern in London (2014). Collections including his works, amongst others, are Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, Saatchi Collection, London, CAC Málaga, Spain and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
